Saw this today on another forum and figured I would put it up over here.

Seems like a totally awsome player for a really cheap price.

The DV-970HD plays DVD-Audio and SACD's. So that would be a great way to cheaply get into the higher end media...

No kidding, the guys over on HT Guide say they are pretty good and they are happy with them... For that price you can't beat it....

I was looking at the AVS threads last year and many folks got the boner
for Oppo mainly because they implemented video circuitry that usually was
found in more expensive players. At that time, $300 was the price for
their particular model of interest, IIRC killer video over HDMI.

From an audio point of view, I bet a sub $100 universal DVD player would
satisfy many folks. If you have an old HDTV that supports 1080i but only
has analog {component level} level inputs, the old Samsung HD-941
player can do the upsampling over analog, an illegal function today, by
using a simple remote control 'hack'. Paid $126 last year, seen some used
for $80 on Amazon. Great audio and video for cheap. If you do have an HDTV
set with DVI or HDMI, then spend a few more bucks to get a more modern
DVD player with more uber picture quality.
